The only reason for such a trip is to get as wasted as possible. And we're supposed to be surprised when something goes wrong? To avoid lawsuits, the direction is a little tricky here, but we're supposed to think that Joran is drugging Natalee.
For some reason, the high school sponsors a trip to a third world protectorate where the drinking and gambling age are 18. So Natalee goes to Aruba and gets really into body shots and meets a charming young local named Joran.
But whether it's a girl in Aruba whose crazy mom refuses to believe her little angel would have sex or take drugs (or a girl with cocaine in her system crashing a 0,000 Porsche leaving her with a case of exploded head), I just can't work myself up about it. So I'm going to keep on being snarky about a horrible situation.
Things don't get better when Beth and her husband show up in Aruba uninvited.
(They're able to make the trip on the cheap by borrowing a friend's plane.) Beth takes her framed picture of Natalee to hotel employees.
Has the 12-year-old mystery of Natalee Holloway's disappearance finally been solved?

Holloway's father, Dave Holloway, says a new informant may have revealed the spot where longtime suspect Joran van der Sloot and an accomplice disposed of the body of the 18-year-old.
John Ramsey and Beth Twitty -- aka the parents of Jon Benet Ramsey and Natalee Holloway -- are supposedly dating, according to a FOX News report, but Jon Benet's dad said yesterday that they're just "special friends" grown out of the tragedy that befell both of them.
Lin Wood -- the Atlanta lawyer who represents both Ramsey and Twitty separately -- describes the pair to the AP as "friends who have a great deal of admiration for each other." Is that the sound of spin we're hearing?
The next morning Natalee's mom, Beth, gets the phone call that Natalee didn't show up for her flight.
Beth doesn't want to jump to any conclusions, so she immediately calls 911 and the Birmingham FBI office and tells whomever will listen that her daughter has been kidnapped.
previously reported, an eyewitness informant named Gabriel has come forward with details about how Natalee died, claiming that she choked on her vomit while with Joran van der Sloot — prompting him to panic, and bury her body with the help of his father.
